Must eat brains!
8 March 2006 | by (the Doomed Megalopolis of Blasphemous Technoids) – See all my reviews

Call me easy to please, but I actually kinda liked THE OUTPOST (aka MIND RIPPER). The movie is just average in every sense of the word. It's not original and it never rises above mediocrity. But hell, I'll watch any movie with Lance Henriksen in it, because he's always decent.

Once again a military science-project has gone wrong (when will they ever learn?). On a desolate underground outpost in the desert a human is injected with an experimental virus (in order to create the perfect soldier). He then slowly mutates into a killing machine with a craving for human brains. Stockton (Lance Henriksen), who once abandoned the project when the military took over, gets called in to fix the problem. He decides to take along his son, his daughter and her boyfriend.

What we get then is your basic ALIEN-plot: a lot of running around in tight hallways, systematically killing off all the scientists and a final battle with the mutant outside the complex. Why did I like it? Ehrr... Lance Henriksen is in it... and the mutant-man's spiky tentacle coming out of his mouth to suck people's brains was kinda cool. The make-up effects were all quite good, actually. And then there was the mutant's dream-sequence (I gotta hand it to the film-makers: they got me there!). And what about Giovanni Ribisi? Well, he looked stoned throughout the whole movie (in fact, he always does, even in TV's FRIENDS). But he and Lance were the best actors of the cast. And Natasha Wagner and Claire Stansfield are always nice to look at. Come to think of it: there weren't actually many actors in this movie. Strange, when you consider that it all took place in a scientific/military facility. No security, no dumb soldiers running around, nothing.

Whatever, to me this was a nice 90 minutes time-waster with some gory brain-sucking action. Nothing special.
